About Us

Who We Are

The 99 is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that plans to provide emergency temporary shelter and services to victims of family violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. The 99 is actively working towards becoming duel programmed with two emergency facilities: The Battered Women’s Shelter, which will serve victims of family violence, and the Rape Crisis Center, which will serve victims of sexual assault. Both programs will offer a 24-hour toll-free crisis line, staffed by trained personnel, that is available to anyone wishing to utilize the emergency facilities or the Outreach Programs. Both programs plan to serve Platte and Clay County residents.

In January of 2015 the founder of ‘The 99’ became a victim of sexual assault. She has made it her mission to create a success story and implement supportive services in her community since becoming a sexual assault survivor. In April of 2024 ‘The 99’ became established as a nonprofit corporation prepared to serve a community of individuals in need of supportive services. Thanks to the courage and efforts of local volunteers and our Board of Directors, ‘The 99’ will become an important resource for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
